Afghans trapped in Afghanistan need money to survive until VISA's are approved. Help me help my Afghan brothers who helped me stay alive!

by Matt Ford in Caterham, England, United Kingdom

I have two Afghan friends and their families whom are in great peril. They could not get out in time on the evacuation flights even though they were on the list. They are in a dangerous situation. The Taliban are interrogating and torturing the men. Meanwhile the Canadian Embassy in Doha Qatar has interviewed one of them for the intent to complete the VISA process. All while the Taliban are closing in and threatening to execute them. This is a race against time to keep them fed, to let them survive and eventually get them all on a commercial flight to Canada once Canada approves the visa travel. Afghanistan is becoming a humanitarian disaster zone with the price of food sky rocketing beyond belief. I cannot sit back watch this unfold on TV. I have made friends during my time in Afghanistan. They are very passionate, trustworthy, loyal, funny, loving, caring patriots. They helped us when we needed them, putting their lives on the line. Now they need our help. The Taliban are murdering and mutilating Afghan men every single day; accused of helping NATO. These terrorists have no place in this world. We need to get these brave men out of Afghanistan. The mission is not over until all those whom helped us are free from harm! I will be showing photos and videos but I cannot do this here due to operational security. I cannot show a photo that the Taliban might see and use to identify my friends. But if you come to my quiz night, I will happily show a presentation to make this more real for everyone! I'm trying to raise £500 now to help with food and costs of living. I will raise more in the near future once I can get some cash flow to Kabul.
